Gifts

The great success that the League of Friends has achieved in raising funds has enabled it to provide a very large number of gifts to the hospital. In 2019, approximately £244,000 worth of equipment and other items was pledged to the hospital.  The table below lists 2019/20 gifts to date, which also reveals just how varied these items can be, not only in type but in value as well. But irrespective of these variations, each item will have been requested by the ward or department in question because of the great benefit it would bring to patients, visitors and staff. 

The remaining League of Friends 2020 deadlines for gift requests are: 7 September and 2 November.  An application form for charitable funding can be found under the Reports tab.  For medical equipment, please contact the League office ekh-tr.leagueoffriends@nhs.net for information about the new portal.
